Romelu Lukaku transfer odds – Man Utd, Newcastle and Barcelona trail Inter for Chelsea star with meeting planned today

CHELSEA striker Romelu Lukaku could be heading for an abrupt departure from Stamford Bridge, reports claim.

And his previous club Inter Milan are favourites to clinch his signature before the transfer window closes on the 31st January.

However, bookmakers Sky Bet believe several European heavyweights could challenge for his services with Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona also in the running.

The centre-forward has registered seven goals in 18 appearances since he rejoined Chelsea from the Italian champions for £97.5million in the summer.

But things appear to have quickly deteriorated.

Lukaku was completely omitted from the squad for Sunday's 2-2 draw with Liverpool after comments he made in an unauthorised interview recorded several weeks ago with Sky Sport Italia.

The 28-year-old said he was "not happy" with his bit-part role under manager Thomas Tuchel earlier this season.

He also added that he wanted to go back to Inter Milan in the near future.

In the interview that aired last Thursday, Lukaku said: "I'm not happy with the situation, this is normal. But I am a worker and I must not give up.

"I really hope in the depths of my heart to return to Inter, not at the end of my career, but at a still good level to hopefully win more."

Tuchel responded by dropping Lukaku and revealed that a meeting will take place on Monday to discuss the player's return to the squad.

He told reporters: "He is our player, there is always a way back.

"We will clear this behind closed doors and once we have made a decision and Romelu knows, you will maybe know also. It is not to be discussed now."

If the situation isn't resolved, Sky Bet think a January sale or loan could be on the cards with Inter the 8/1 favourites.

Italian rivals Juventus are second-favourites at 14/1 with Carlo Ancelotti's Real Madrid following at 18s.

Barcelona are available at 20/1 with Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Manchester United priced at 22/1 and 25/1 respectively.

Newcastle are also priced at 25/1 with Everton the outsiders of the chasing pack at 33/1.
